When an iced latte doesn't hit the spot, but ice cream won’t quite satisfy your craving, make an Iced Mushroom Cocoa Latte! Using our Mushroom Cocoa and Mushroom Magic, this iced latte is creamy, chocolatey, and delicious over ice. It leaves you feeling grounded and satisfied, since it’s both a little savory and a little sweet.
The Mushroom Cocoa has a mix of medicinal mushrooms: chaga, cordyceps, lion’s mane, and turkey tail, each supporting a different part of the body on a cellular level. Mushroom Magic is a triple-extract of six medicinal mushrooms, blended with vanilla and cinnamon; so we’re using it as our sweetener in this recipe! And with the beautiful cocoa, the overall flavor is earthy and chocolatey. Enjoy!

2-3 dropperfuls Mushroom Magic
1 tbsp Mushroom Cocoa
1 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp pink salt
½ tsp vanilla extract or flavoring
1 handful raw cashews or your favorite milk / milk alternative
Start by soaking your raw cashews in water for 15-45 minutes, depending on how powerful your blender is. This will create a cashew “milk” once we blend all the ingredients together. You can also skip this step and use any of your favorite nut milks.
In a separate bowl, add 1 tbsp of Mushroom Cocoa to hot water and stir (or whisk).
Add cinnamon, pink salt, and vanilla.
Add 2-3 dropperfuls of Mushroom Magic.
Blend for 1-2 minutes until the cashews are fully blended and you have a frothy latte-like consistency.
Pour over ice.
Add cinnamon and enjoy!
Customize further: Add maca for a caramel flavor, add coconut butter for extra creaminess, add turmeric for a little spice, add a date or a little honey for more sweetness.
